Timex is a well known brand in the watch industry who has been round for quite some time! In this review we take a look at one of their more popular classic budget affordable watches. We will be taking a brief look at the specs, style, and features of this iconic watch. This is our review of the Timex Men’s Weekender watch.
The Timex Weekender is a unisex quartz watch with a dial made of mineral glass. It has a brass bezel. The band is 20 millimeters and is made of nylon. It sports water resistance of up to 30 meters. And finally, it features the Indiglo backlighting feature. The case is made of brass and has a diameter of 38 millimeters, with a thickness of 9 millimeters.
The Weekender is lightweight, comfortable, comes in different sizes and models, and has a huge selection of different colored nylon watch straps to choose from. The Weekender has a simple design that would fit almost any clothing set you could think of. The numerals are very easy to see because the watch is somewhat large, but not overly so. There is a touch of color in the red seconds hand, which gives it added emphasis vs everything else.
Not much to say about it in the way of features. The Weekender is a quite simply a watch. You set the time and that’s it. No smart features, apps, or syncing with anything, which is fine considering this is a budget watch. It does have military time listed on the inner side under the standard time numerals.
The Indiglo backlighting works by pressing down on the crown of the watch. The watch then lights up with a blueish green hue. It also possesses quick release straps that make it easier to change the watch bands.
The 3 to 5 year battery life means you probably won’t be changing the batteries for the entire duration of your ownership of the watch.
Really, I can’t complain too much about this watch, as it delivers for the most part exactly what you would expect from a budget watch. The only minor downside is that many users complain that the ticking is too loud. I guess that is going to be a matter of opinion and varies from individual to individual, but that is just something to be aware of.
